Easier (and why do I give away my best ideas?) would be to hack Matt Drudge. As we all know, he mostly links to other sites with big stories.

Mostly? That's all he does. It's also not known if Drudge sold the site or not. It's gotten a lot less conservative since Trump was elected with a lot of former readers no longer use it as a news source; I never did so nothing's changed.

Jack Lillywhite

Do people still actually get their news from dead trees? I haven’t read any newspaper in over15 years and it was the Daytona News-Journal. If it’s important Maguire will bring it to my attention, right?

Jane

Good Morning. Beautiful morning! Wake up and smell the roses!

Jane

Capt,

Drudge was fine until about a year + ago. I’ve read in several places, he sold.

It’s a bummer!

DrJ

Do people still actually get their news from dead trees?

Yes. We get the WSj almost daily. The Sac Bee on Sundays, though it is a garbage paper. And the local paper is sent to us a few times a week.

I find that I read the dead tree editions differently than on-line news. I see and read things that are interesting that I don't find on-line.

I am even considering resubscribing to the dead tree version on the E-communist.

Same here. The online versions are hard to just browse and come across something that you weren't already looking for, or what the editors select for you to see.

Let me rephrase that. The online versions are hard to just browse and come across something other than what you were already looking for, or other than what the site highlights for you to see.

Captain Hate

Jane,

Numerous members of the Horde said Drudge sold the site but I couldn't find a confirmation of that anywhere else

Drudge got his start on Slick's Lewinsky affair, right? Thinking back on that, particularly after listening to Whitlock on Levin, I don't think most people are aware of just how damaging that was to the country. I'm old enough to remember the Profumo affair, when banging prostitutes was enough to bring down a government. And the reason it did was because it was a security nightmare because it opens politicians to being blackmailed over it. This isn't a difficult concept to grasp.

Fast forward to Monica. At first the entire nation was outraged with many expecting the red nosed predator to resign. But that quickly morphed into "it's only sex" and how could we bluenoses be so prim and proper, completely ignoring the security matters. There was massive transferral of missile technology to China under that pervert. We know he received illegal contributions from Asia about which there were some token small fry prosecutions.

Clinton sold the country out to China and everything they've got their filthy chink hands on today, including BLM, is because of him.

“critical infrastructure that could influence the election is not in the hands of government experts”

And thank Gaia for that.

“Since 2016, thousands of pages of federal investigative reports have been published on what went wrong in the presidential election that year,“

The ONLY thing that “went wrong” was Trump won. And they’re STILL humping a handful of a Facebook posts as “election interference”, LOL.

“but we are very concerned about the possibility of real foreign actors hijacking legitimate sources of information — key media accounts for instance — and using that to push out disinformation”

Unconcerned about domestic actors doing it? I suspect democrats (through cutouts of course) are planning on doing exactly that.

Logical next step? Shut ‘em down. Leave informing you to the professionals of the NYT. It’s all for your own safety don’tcha know.

This is a fight to save our democracy. These federal agents must be stopped and removed from the city

Federal agents are terrorizing the community, threatening lives, and relentlessly attacking protesters demonstrating against police brutality.

This is not law and order. This is lawlessness — and it must be stopped.

The lawsuit — the first of multiple to be filed against the Trump administration in Portland — seeks to block DHS and other agencies from attacking journalists and legal observers at protests.

We're bringing the full power of the ACLU to bear until this lawless policing ends.

Those of you embarrassed by not subscribing to a physical newspaper are welcome to subscribe to the Rome Daily Sentinel. It's very affordable and we could use more subscribers.

If you find the digital version hard to read, we could mail you the "dead tree" edition, but the postage is very expensive and delivery often sucks.

If the cost of mail is an obstacle, you could subscribe to the print edition and we just won't send it to you.

Probably not this weekend because I'm sure he lines up guests in advance to fit their scheduling requirements, Jane, but definitely at some point in the near future. Thanks for listening to that; I felt that it explained a number of things that had puzzled me before.

I'd commented on here previously about how I'd go to get togethers at a former neighbor's place who was a biotechnology prof at Crewe specializing in things like nanoparticles. His grad students who attended were ChiComs who were very westernized and friendly. I commented at the time that it would be difficult to keep them happy in a centralized economy.

Maybe I was concentrating on the wrong thing...

Melinda,

Your 9:13 clarifying the date on the CBS golden visa: these is more to it I think, since while we are the largest target, they do great harm to smaller countries, too:

"Over the last decade, more than 100,000 Chinese have poured at least $24 billion into "golden visa" programs across the world, an Associated Press analysis has found. These programs offer residence in exchange for investment in a country's businesses. Nowhere is Chinese demand greater than in the United States, which has taken in at least $7.7 billion and issued more than 40,000 visas to Chinese investors and their families in the past 10 years, the AP found."

Also, why has CBS just now noticed this?

Captain Hate

JOMspeak for Case Western Reserve University. I think James used it as a school name in his first full length work of fiction, which I should probably read just for the satirical content.

Another Bob

Ah, thanks. I thought you were Case, but keep seeing Crewe.

I’ve been here long enough, you’d think I should know that...

Good morning,

I woke up early to shower and shave for my wife's uncles graveside memorial service in Westwood. I was a bit insulted when my wife asked me if I'd mind staying home, it seems her aunt, who lives next door to her father, asked if she could ride with them to the service, even though her son lives with her. I guess he's not going to his fathers funeral because his fathers minister is gay.

My sister in laws car is acting up so there's no room for me.

RIP Uncle Arnie

Good Morning! I remember 1998 and the Lewinsky scandal because after Drudge broke the story, the story made it to the MSM and the Sunday talk shows. We happened to be visiting my in-laws in Florida. My father-in-law was very upset. When we returned to Maine,the ice storm of 1998 paralyzed the state. We didn't get hit too hard in northern Maine ( I don't remember losing power) but a week later I drove to NH to because my grandmother died. I drove in a white-out snowstorm to Manchester to pick up the daughter and then we attended the funeral. A few other things happened in 1998 that made the whole year suck. All the while,Clinton got away with his scandal.

AB,

He joined a church and I'm not sure which one but that's his reason for not attending. Evidently, his church doesn't believe in the 10 Commandments.

She has three other kids, one who's physically impaired, another in NH and a daughter we haven't seen since she married twenty years ago.

My wife certainly doesn't mind driving her aunt to the service, she just knows her aunt would rather be with her family.

Uncle Arnie lived a healthy and active life until dementia set in. I say dementia because I can't spell Alzheimer's. He was 94.

An update. Two days ago I emailed my doctor(it is an HMO group) and requested HDQ and zinc. While waiting for a reply my fevers really got out of control but then stabilized. At which point, yesterday morning, I noticed that my o2 was dropping. I was at 97 pretty consistently but that dropped to 91-92. My wife kept a close eye on it and as soon as I went below 90 we were off the the emergency room.

I am now in a hospital room on 2 liters of oxygen(very low dose) and my o2 stays around 95-97. I have “covid pneumonia” and a condition the doctors call “happy” or “silent” hypoxia. The phenomenon is that I can breath and talk normally despite the X-ray looking like my lungs are half filled with cotton candy.

I woke up this morning and the HMO group responded:

Although the recent data with hydroxychloroquine has been controversial, there remains no evidence that the medication can help in the outpatient setting. It could indeed be harmful.

Re: COVID-19 and CHLOROQUINE
Updated 5/21/2020
1. There is evidence that using hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin in the face of COVID19 can increase adverse events, leading to death
2. Hydroxychloroquine use, by itself, has shown increased cardiovascular mortality and adverse effects (it can cause fatal heart rhythms and/or liver failure)
in treating patients with COVID19 so the risks outweigh any potential benefits of the drug
3. Neither drug has been approved for use at this time because of these findings nor are have they been approved to take to prevent COVID19

Great.

At the moment I have not met the doctor or respiratory therapist so I haven’t gone over this with anyone here.

I am really tired, but I am drinking and eating just fine. I have no idea how long I will be here.

Love to everyone.

This is bullshit and you're not an outpatient.

HCQ/Zpak runs about $20-30, maybe less. One reason it is hated (besides Trump) is BECAUSE it's cheap. The pharma people want an expensive, patented "solution." I'm not even much of a Big Pharma conspiracy person but this is so obvious.

One of the breathless reports I read was that camouflaged storm troopers swept in in a unmarked van with Florida plates. I would assume that if they were Feds, it would have had USG plates.

In addition, I understand the feds are protecting the Federal monuments and facilities. Some punk shows up with a rock and whoosh he's in front of a federal magistrate. Sounds aright to me.

Last year's Masters was probably Tiger's last hurrah. Augusta National is a course he knows like the back of his hand and is well suited for his game. Being mentally confident can't be overstated in terms of enabling an athlete to excel, particularly in golf.

Last year's performance was incredible. Even I was cheering for him, primarily for resisting Nike's efforts to badmouth DJT. That took a lot of character which I had to acknowledge.

Needs to show up early, if coming from certain states and Florida is one of them. 14 day quarantine before start of classes. A negative PCR test within 7 days of arrival. Needs to bring shower caddy and all the goodies That go in them since school will not supply shower rooms with the. Also his on thermometer.

If I wear a mask just to go shopping I start to loose my breath. Can’t imagine wearing one all day in classes.

After I read TK's post about 45 minutes ago, I was sitting, contemplating events. My husband came by, took one look at me, and asked, 'what's wrong?' I said, 'nothing.' I was full of so many different emotions.

Since then, I've killed some hornets making a nest in an overhand on our porch. Made me feel a bit better. Not much.

I finally went and told my husband about TK being in the hospital and the HMO refusing his request for HCQ. He said, 'Now, don't you go getting all upset.' (He doesn't like me being upset.) :) I told him I've known TK for years.

I am so upset.
